CVE-2016-8405

Published: 12 January 2017

An information disclosure vulnerability in kernel components including the ION subsystem, Binder, USB driver and networking subsystem could enable a local malicious application to access data outside of its permission levels. This issue is rated as Moderate because it first requires compromising a privileged process. Product: Android. Versions: Kernel-3.10, Kernel-3.18. Android ID: A-31651010.

From the Ubuntu security team

Peter Pi discovered that the colormap handling for frame buffer devices in the Linux kernel contained an integer overflow. A local attacker could use this to disclose sensitive information (kernel memory).
